A Saskatchewan man is dead after a two-vehicle crash on an icy highway in east-central Alberta.

RCMP believe the 41-year-old Saskatoon resident lost control of his sport-utility vehicle before it collided with a pickup truck on Highway 897 near Marwayne Wednesday morning.

The truck driver wasn't hurt, but four passengers were taken to hospital, including one who was airlifted to Edmonton for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.

Alcohol is not considered a factor in the crash.
